Dick Awards A superbly imagined, sensorily vivid novel, recommended by Your Humble Webmaster. Short sample of opening page text: "By 11 A.M. the mrning breeze that had rustled the coarse leaves of the fig tree had quieted to baking stillness. The daybreak sounds of roosters crowing, transistor radios blaring Arabic music, and the voices of the village children, remote but clear in the oasis silence below the mountains, had given way to the crunching passage of an occasional car on the road outside the high garden wall and, from the villa next door, the clank of pots, clack of plastic slippers on the tile floor, the slam of a screen door, and the voices of women doing housework. Blaine Ramsey sat sweating on an extruded-plastic garden chair of Israeli manufacture under the waxy green leaves of lemon trees, in a niche of shade where the blue-whitewashed stucco of his rented house came within two meters of the garden wall. It was the coolest place in the garden, though still prickly with June heat. Beside the tiny house, where the flagstone walk ran between rows of okra bushes, cucumber vines, thyme, and lavender, the sunlight was almost too bright to look at, though still fresh with a dusty morning paleness. At the bottom of the garden were orange and fig trees, and by the concrete garden wall was a tall jacaranda with blossoms like crimson birds perching on its fernlike leaves. The gardner had left the hose running since early morning, and Blaine could hear its faint ripple, smell the hot dampness drawn out from the earth by the sun." Although the technological premise of "Tower of Dreams" is not credible to this reviewer, the power with which Jamil Nasir works through the human impact of the technology, and a paradigm shift it creates, plus the strikingly sensual, gorgeous, and gritty prose, makes this a novel not to be missed. * Distance Haze [Bantam, 2000] Short Fiction: * "The Darkness Beyond" [Aboriginal Science Fiction, May/Jun 1988] * "Not Even Ashes" [Interzone, Sep/Oct 1989] * "The Book of St. Farrin" [Universe 1, ed.

Drawing strength from biological concepts of Darwin, and Taine's social determinism, the Naturalists attempted to replace the old subjectivity with new objectivity, and reveal humans and society as acurately as subjects in scientific experiments. The leaders included Balzac, Flaubert, and Stendahl (retroactively drafted as precursors), and explicitly Daudet, the brothers Goncourt, Maupassant, and (also acting as chief theoretician) Zola. The movement spread to England, with George Gissing, Thomas Hardy, Samuel Butler, and Somerset Maugham. In America, the movement accreted Stephen Crane (at least at first, in "Maggie: A Girl of the Streets"), Frank Norris, Jack London (who also intentionally wrote Science Fiction), Theodore Dresier, and James T. Farrell. It was briefly important in Germany (1882-1891), and perhaps earliest in Russia (Vissarion Belinksi, circa 1840). Today's division between Fantasy and Science Fiction is, historically, an outgrowth of the struggle between Romanticism and Naturalism. In the late 20th Century, various writers deliberately tried to bridge the gap.

Newton, pseudonym of John N. Chance Sir Isaac Newton, the greatest scientist of all time, whom you would not believe if you read of him as a fictional character. Driven from London by the Great Plague, he created 3 paradigm-shifting scientific breakthroughs in one miraculous year: Calculus, modern Optics, and the Universal Law of Gravitation. He was also a cantankerous argumentative creep who drove away all his friends, probably died a virgin to further his alchemy researches, became Keeper of the Royal Mint (all the gold any alchemist could ever need). Late in life, he felt that his greatest work was a study on the Book of Revelations. His last article: a history of the English penny. His last book: on the mystical secrets of the Pyramids. Both the first of the great modern scientists and the last of the great ancient magicians. Go figure. [Wilfrid] Douglas Newton (1884-?)

G. K. Chesterton insisted in "A Defense of Nonsense" [The Defendant, 1901] that Edward Lear was better, in that his non sequiturs, disjointed strangenesses, and verbal coinages (such as "runcible spoon") make for a more powerful poetry than the logical-illogical inversions of Lewis Carroll (who was, after all, a mathematician). Other notable nonsense may be found in: * A Book of Nonsense [1972] Mervyn Peake poetry * The Man Who Was Thursday [1908] G.K. Chesterton * The Thirteen Clocks [1950] James Thurber * Fire and Hemlock [1985] Diana Wynne Jones * The Kindly Ones [1996] graphic novel by Neil Gaiman * the major works of James Joyce, including "Ulysses" and "Finnegan's Wake" [1939] * truths concealed in only-apparently nonsensical utterings of Fools and Oracles (see "Fool", "Oracle") * see also "Absurd", "Magic Word", "Satire", "Surrealism" * see also "Nostradamus" (according to "The Encyclopedia of Fantasy", John Clute & John Grant, St.Martin's, 1997, p.691) Your Humble Webmaster would like to note that a deeper analysis of Nonsense may be found through Communication Theory (as founded by Claude Shannon). When a message has been compressed or coded to make maximum use of a communications channel, it becomes statistically indistinguishable from noise. Poetry is more densely coded and compressed than ordinary prose, as in verse alone, every word, every syllable, has to have calculated effect. Hence nonsense poetry, a subset of Science Fiction and Fantasy POETRY, is meaningful and interesting precisely because it is "on the edge of chaos," where the experts on Artificial Life insist the most interesting an unpredictable phoneomena occur.

He achieved best-sellerdom in 1555 with "Les Propheties de Me. Michel Nostradamus" in 353 quatrains edited into "centuries" of 100 verses each, to which more were added in the 1557 and 1558 editions, reaching the total of 1040 verses (and then 8 posthumous ones). The "1040" was his most chilling prophecy to Americans half a millennium later, as the dreaded Internal Revenue Service uses as its primary instrument of torture the "Form 1040." Your Humble Webmaster has suffered thousands of hours of tax preparation and has endured several agonizing tax audits. "Nothing is certain except Death and Taxes" they say, which gets us back to the subject... Prediction is hard, especially about the future. Nostradamus hedged his bets by embedding his prophecies in ambiguity, pun, homonym, metaphor, heraldry, religion, alchemy, and a bizarre Fantasy diction which has more linguistic and literary interest than (to me) his vague occultist pseudo-prediction. In my humble opinion, his predictions are negligable, but his celebrity gives hope to all minor poets who try to turn hack-work into marketable commodities. In a sense, his work is a precursor to to the genre of Science Fantasy, which uses the tropes of Fantasy in combination with the pretense of futurology in Science Fiction.
